Ingram was born in Port Elizabeth. He attended Woodridge College in the Eastern Cape where he was their star cricketer in his years there. He played for the college for 5 years and captained them for 3 of those years.
Ingram made his First Team debut at the age of 14 and continued to play at this level throughout the rest of his high school career. He played provincial cricket for the Eastern Province team and was also selected for the South African schools team.
Ingram accepted a scholarship to study at the University of the Free State in 2004. He enjoyed a successful stint in the university team before leaving to return to the Eastern Cape.
First Class, Domestic & Club Cricket
Ingram played two seasons in England for Spondon Cricket Club in the Derbyshire Premier League, scoring 2401 runs at an average of 57.17. Ingram struggled for a batting spot in the Eastern Province originally, but soon after he gained experience from both County Cricket, and some playing time for Eastern Province, his skills increased with each innings played.
Ingram is among the brightest talent produced by the Eastern Cape in recent years. In a region of South Africa that has often seen its budding stars bloom fully elsewhere, Ingram has remained true to his roots and stayed with the Warriors. He brings a bracing brand of aggression to opening the batting, and he took his game to the next level when he scored 85 off 111 balls to guide South Africa A to victory over Pakistan A in Colombo in the first match of a triangular series that also involved Sri Lanka A.
Ingram currently plays for the Chevrolet Warriors in the domestic cricket league. He participated in the 2010 Champions League Twenty20, scoring well and assisting his team to reach the final.
Ingram made his Twenty20 International debut against Zimbabwe during Zimbabwe's tour of South Africa in 2010, playing in both matches. He didn't get a chance to bat for a long while, scoring a total of 15 runs in the two-match series (3 & 12) as South Africa registered victories in both matches. He made his mark on his ODI debut in the ODI series against Zimbabwe in 2010 that followed the T20 series by scoring a century (124), only the sixth person to score a century on debut and the first South African ever to carry this honour.
